A pleasant surprise.
This wine was recommended to me in the store. I was slightly dubious, a 2001 Haut-Medoc at £9.99, wouldn't normal have tempted me, and when I opened it and poured a taster it was as I suspected, musty, thin and past its best. Do I decant? not sure, that might make it worse, so I just left it! An hour later, expecting the worst I poured a glass to go with a nice bit of fillet and surprise surprise, it was great!! on the lighter side of medium bodied but at £9.99 at treat.
